Hearing a doctor tell you the hard truth, that you have cancer, takes your breath away. After a little while it becomes abundantly clear that the initial shock is compounded by the overwhelming costs involved. It's an added stress to you and your loved ones.
While you will definitely be concentrating on beating cancer, there may be some very boring times, such as days of chemotherapy, that you can use toward a plan for cutting associated costs. My own experience has helped me come up with ideas that are easy to incorporate into my treatments, tests, and procedures. I hope they will help you, too!
Feeling like you're in control of some aspects of your life can be a gift you give yourself when something like cancer seems to be invading so much of it. Keep the faith!
